"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose."
The plan for Sunday is for Brian and I to visit Toronto church for the morning service but most likely won't hit the afternoon service because we don't want to leave Tyson for too long. Even though there isn't much we can do for him yet, we don't want to be so far away all day in case there is a change in his condition (good or bad).
Right now Tyson is soooooo low in immunity and if he were to catch a cold at this time, it would set his progress back quite a bit. The least amount of people who go in and breathe on him and fuss over him, the quicker he will recover. Please understand why we don't want too many people touching him and fussing over him. We want him to recuperate as quickly as he can so that we can hold him again, nurse him again, and GO HOME with him again!
This morning I heard a baby crying as I was walking down the hall and I burst into tears because I just want to hear my son cry again! Sounds funny but I really want to hear him cry again, then I know he is stronger and on the road to good recovery. The nurse last night said that he is making a "textbook recovery", nothing miraculous but nothing terribly alarming. So that is good news. We just have to be patient. He has some fluid behind his lungs from laying on his back a lot, but that is very common. The doctors are keeping a close eye on it and if it is still there by tomorrow they will insert another tube to drain the fluid. He will have an ultrasound in the morning to see how things are looking.
This afternoon my parents came to visit with Braden, Merrick and Kenya. We had a nice time. I got a chance to look over the boys school work from this past week, and Kenya showed me some of the colouring she has been doing at Grandma's house. Even though the kids were not able to go in and see Tyson we managed to keep them busy playing in Marnie's Lounge where there are air hockey tables and table hockey, among other things. Then we enjoyed some fresh air and walked over to the Eaton's Centre which is a few blocks away. The kids enjoyed gazing at the huge Christmas tree and lights that they have on display there.
That's all for now,
Brian, Mel and Tyson
